Fulham boss talks about his side’s form ahead of their Manchester clash.



Scott Parker

says that they have improved and they are in good form ahead of their big match against Manchester United.

“We’ve done remarkably well considering where we were at the start of the season,”

said Parker


“We were probably the laughing stock in terms of how people were portraying us – never was that the case in-house.

“We’ve done remarkably well to be fighting and punching away like we are – not just with determination and grit, but with a real style about us.

“It’s clear that you can see a real drastic improvement in our overall game.

“There was a narrative around us at the start of this season and that narrative was probably helped by the previous time we were in this division.

“We lost two games by more than two goals, that narrative was instantly in people’s heads, ‘Oh look, it’s the same Fulham’.

“I just think people were blurred a little bit by the last time we were here. I can understand why. It was certainly an area we needed to address.

“We’ve got draws, we now need to turn some of those draws into wins,

“That’s the next big challenge for us. We’ve been able to stay in games, give ourselves a platform, become a lot more solid.

“The fine margins of this division, you need to take your opportunities when they come.

“To do that, you’ve got to do the hardest thing in the game and that’s put the ball in the back of the net.

“We have one recognized striker in the building in Mitrovic. We understand where we are a little bit light.

“But this window is a tough window and time`s not on our side, really. We’ll work relentlessly hard to try and improve our attacking play.”
